Web Browsing Great On The Excellent HTC Explorer
The HTC Explorer offers some great features but the refreshing thing about this model is that it is one of the most simple to operate.

The HTC Sense interface that is used on this model really does simplify the Android operating system that is used on the phone. Rather than being presented with a homescreen that is full of unused applications and icons the Explorer knows which features you use more frequently and places these more prominently on the main screen. The Explorer also incorporates Push Notifications which means that the user can be kept up to date with certain applications without actually needing to access them. One area where this works very well is with the e mail feature on the phone. The Explorer will let you know if you have incoming mail, even if you are not currently using the e mail application. These notifications are displayed clearly on the main screen and swiping your finger across them will then automatically launch the relevant application. Even when the phone is not in use it is still easy to activate thanks to a well designed lockscreen which enables you to directly access certain features. Contacts, mail, camera and messages can all be opened by a simple swipe on the screen.

The internet browser on the HTC Explorer is another example of just how simple this handset is to use. The nice thing about this browser is that it is very similar to what you may expect to find on a home PC or laptop so it immediately feels familiar. A large address bar is located at the top of the screen which uses a nice clear font so that web addresses are easy to read. The high quality display that the phone uses help web pages look vivid and detailed and even small text that is displayed is easy to read. The model will automatically change the size of a webpage so that it can be displayed in full on your phone screen. This reduces the need for the user to have to pan across the screen to get all of the news that they want. If the page you are viewing contains a phone number that you need you can tap the digits and the phone will call that number. Likewise if an address is displayed a simple tap will open Google Maps which will display location details.
The HTC Explorer offers some great features but the refreshing thing about this model is that it is one of the most simple to operate. Thanks to this simplicity the phone is ideal to people who have previously never used a smartphone. Thanks to the cheaper price of this model compared with rival phones it is also a great gift idea for the forthcoming festive period.
